The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden lies in the area of ground behind St Leonard's Church in Hove.  It was formally a garden and allotment area at least 10 years ago, which had been neglected and grown wild.

The garden is now abundant with raised beds growing a variety of vegetables, herbs and plants, a scented area, a wild area with a pond, shed, greenhouse and 4 bee hives.

They have an expanding band of volunteers who work to make the garden beautiful as well as productive.  Access to the area is through the church grounds and they are open to all members of the community. Disabled access is limited at the moment, but there are plans to make the main path and adjoining beds suitable for wheelchair users. The garden encourages children accompanied by their parents to work or play alongside us to educate and enhance their knowledge of growing things and wildlife.


Garden situated behind St Leonard's Church, New Church Road, Hove, BN3 4ED.

Regular workdays:

Wednesdays and Saturdays 11 – 2pm.
